(June 09, 1930 - November 25, 1997)

Barbara was a popular French female singer. Although influenced by songwriters Mireille and Charles Trenet, two of the biggest stars of the day, she nonetheless developed her own style and the writing of her own songs transformed her image into that of a unique singer-song writer. Her intensely poetic lyrics, her dramatic on-stage performances, and the depth of emotion in her voice, all garnered her a huge following that lasted for more than thirty years. She is considered an icon of French musical history.
